Public Works: Unsolicited Small Projects for the Big Dig

A graphic commentary on the largest and most expensive urban public work in modern U.S. History, Meejin Yoon and Meredith Miller, in collaboration with HYA, expose the process and subsequent effects of the Big Dig. The book is a critical reflection on city planning, bringing into question the effective distribution of public space versus public works. Containing essays and proposing fourteen speculative design interventions, the book is a suggestion on how to better reconnect the public’s experience with each expressway and park that resulted from Boston's Big Dig.
